Current and connection are the main themes of the interior design of Proti Proudu Bistro in Prague district Karlín. Inspiration by František Křižík, the Karlín-born electrical engineering inovator, merged with the idea of connecting through good coffee and delicious food. The main bar wall, made of white perforated plywood, creates a grid, which all the components on the wall connect to – from the sliding targets of wires to the paper roll with daily menu. Network of wires, stretching from the switches behind the counter to the lights above the tables, draws attention to the connection between staff and guests.
